Maxxis HP5 Summer Tyre Test Winner
Great news! Maxxis Premitra 5 HP5 have been crowned “clear test winner” in the 2021 Vi Bilägare Summer Tyre Test.
Swedish automotive magazine, Vi Bilägare, recently undertook a test of eight 225/45 R17 summer tyres, and confirmed the Maxxis Premitra 5 HP5 summer tyre as the overall winner with the fastest dry road lap time of all tyres tested.
The Maxxis Premitra HP5 has beaten premium Brand summer tyres from Goodyear, Continental, Pirelli and Michelin to win a 2021 summer tyre test.
Conducted by Swedish motoring magazine Vi Bilägare, testers compared eight tyres designed for everyday driving across branded Tyres in the size 225/45 R17.
The result saw the Maxxis Hp5 tyre narrowly beat quality premium brand products like the Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance 2, the Continental PremiumContact 6, the Michelin Primacy 4, and the Pirelli Cinturato P7 C2.
“On a dry road, stability and steering response are top notch.” – Vi Bilägare Summer Tyre Test 2021 [translated]
The aquaplaning test demonstrated a noticeable, positive difference between the aquaplaning safety of the Maxxis tyre compared to the other tyres tested. The Premitra 5 achieved 70.2km/h before aquaplaning on a curve, while the next-best tyres in the test lost grip at 68.5km/h or slower.
“In wet conditions, the grip level remains high and the behaviour is easy to handle with a neutral balance. In addition, it [Maxxis Premitra 5] is best of all against aquaplaning.” - Vi Bilägare Summer Tyre Test 2021 [translated]
The significant strengths of the Maxxis Premitra 5 in both wet and dry conditions, in addition to strong results in dry braking, fuel consumption and wet driving too, made the Maxxis Premitra 5 a clear test winner. In Vi Bilägare’s own words: “…we haven’t even taken the price into account…” [translated].
